Questions about Formula in Excel

Asked By 210 points N/A Posted on -


I have a query about Excel. How can I receive a column (bar chart) which will include variables as a sum?

For example: I have variables: A and B. A =20% and B=40%. I require a column which will depict the sum of these variables (60%). But I require in the column to be obvious that from the 60% the 20% comes from variable A and the 40% from variable B. So, the Column ought to be divided in two parts (in proportion).

Lots of thanks.

  • You first have to create a 3rd variable in another cell with the following formula: =SUM(A+B)
  • Now this cell will show you the exact sum of both variables. Whenever any variable value changes the SUM will also change automatically.
  • Now select the cell which is displaying SUM and then click on the insert menu and select your bar. The bar will be exact as your variable. It will also change when the variables change.
